You've captured the action well and also filled the frame, which gives more impact in a sports shot. The background is a little cluttered, but it is difficult in these places to find a spot with a more empty background, but making sure your apeture is nice & wide will help to take away distractions. It's also a shame that both runners eyes are closed. I don't know if you took a sequence of them coming towards you, but with my cycling shots, I always pick the shots to put up on my website that have the eyes open & also the best expression, I try for effort without them looking too bad. Although this is sharp, I would also use a bit of USM in photoshop to increase the sharpness a bit more.
Hope that helps.
